The Lib Dems are now only two seats away from taking control of Elmbridge Borough Council after gaining four seats in the 2024 Local Elections. However, in what was otherwise a good set of results for the party, the leader of the council Bruce McDonald lost his seat to Mary Marshall, an independent candidate.

Across Elmbridge, voters went to the polls on Thursday (May 2) in order to cast their votes to fill 16 positions on the council.

The Lib Dems went into the 2024 elections as the largest party and held 20 of the 48 seats on the council. The remaining seats were held by 12 Conservatives, 12 Residents Association members, two Walton Society councillors and two Weybridge and St George's Independents.

One third of the seats are being contested in 2024 with one seat up for grabs in each of the area's 16 wards. Councillors will be elected for Claygate, Cobham & Downside, Esher, Hersham Village, Hinchley Wood & Weston Green, Long Ditton, Molesey East, Molesey West, Outlands & Burwood Park, Oxshott & Stoke D'Abernon, Thames Ditton, Walton Central, Walton North, Walton South, Weybridge Riverside and Weybridge & St George's Hill.
